Betfred Rugby Odds: New Zealand Beat Argentina Assault to Retain Rugby Championship Lead

New Zealand remain in the driving seat to win back-to-back Rugby Championship crowns after they came back from behind to defeat Argentina 39-22 at Yarrow Park in New Plymouth on Saturday.

The All Blacks faced the biggest test of their Rugby Championship title defence so far but were able to storm back from a 16-15 deficit at the interval and rescue maximum points in the end.

Young flanker Vaea Fifita scored at a crucial juncture—when Beauden Barrett was serving 10 minutes in the sin bin for a yellow card—to give the hosts the push they needed to claim victory.

Coach Steve Hansen’s side now sit three points clear of second-placed South African in the Rugby Championship standings after three rounds of fixtures.

Betfred have the defending champions picked out as 1/33 (1.03) frontrunners for a second successive crown, and the Springboks, despite the small margin separating them from the leaders, are at long odds of 12/1 (13.00).
